Victorian Women Vote


Carrying on the fight lists more than 800 women candidates who stood for election to the Victorian Parliament, recognising their significant contributions and achievements, despite, in most cases, their lack of success. Biographical entries about a selection of women have been prepared, some containing links to further bibliographical and archival resources.

This exhibition is a project of the National Foundation for Women as part of the Foundation 's ongoing initiative, the Australian Women's Archives Project.

Work on this project was generously funded in 2008 by a Victorian State Government Centenary of Women's Suffrage Grant.
